What makes Grant Creek Ranch Beef better than what you can get in the grocery store? There are many differences and we will discuss a few of the them in this post. Grant Creek Ranch Beef is from Angus cross cattle. These cattle have been specifically bred to produce great taste from grass-fed animals. This cross breed also produces cuts of meat that are restaurant quality; cuts of meat that you would be proud to serve to your dinner guests. These animals are raised in a sustainable fashion: born in a pasture and allowed to roam freely until weaning time. They are weaned at our preconditioning facility in Carney, Oklahoma. Here they can be observed on a daily basis to make sure they are not under any undue stress. Once weaned they are turned out onto our pastures in Oklahoma where they eat a mix of native and Bermuda grass. During the winter they are supplemented with native or Bermuda grass hay and protein cubes, as they continue to forage in a pasture unconfined, through to the finishing process.
At Grant Creek Ranch our cow herd is a closed herd. We are not bringing in new cows unless we are sure they are disease-free. Because our herd is closed, the animal health is excellent and disease is held to a minimum. As a result we are only handling the cattle a couple of times a year (spring and summer) and the rest of the time they are busy grazing away on our pastures.
We are not interested in rapid weight gain or incredible size, therefore neither growth hormones nor steroids are ever used. This is because our customers want and expect naturally-raised, high-quality beef worth every penny.
To sum this up in one simple word: Flavor. Our grass-fed process results in some of the most tender and flavorful meat on the market. Why would you want anything else?
We are currently delivering sides of beef for no charge in the Tulsa area. It is also for sale in the Wichita, Oklahoma City, Bartlesville, and Stillwater Areas (Delivery available for a small fee). Please check out our For Sale page for more information.
